lys327 I have thought about building a setup to accomadate my poles when i take the kids fishing, so the set up is pretty easy to build. 2" pvc tubing for handles attach to a wreath hanger(the kind you use on the door) then drill a hole on bracket part that goes over the door. then with a bady washer and roughly 3 inch bolt you can fasten it to the body where ever you desire and its temporary for fishing season.

Awesome! I have since stopped using that idea and simply slide the reel/handle under the passenger seat with the rod going straight back out the jeep. Its much easier and quicker and doesnt get in the way of opening the passenger door. However i rarely have a full backseat. If i did id pull my contraption out of the trunk

Its nice because it doesnt hit the low hanging trees like a bumper mount would since theyd stick straight up. My contraption keeps them out of the sky. Also it was under 20 bucks haha ive had so many comments and compliments on it from people around town (mostly fellow jeepers). Its worked well for me all summer. Works with or without doors, just gotta put the rods in adter you shut the door and take em out before you open it. Only issue is wont work with a top on but i dont have the top up until its freezing so thats alright with me haha. The rod holder removes and installs in like 2 minutes. Just velcro straps

The straps used here were called rope wraps. They are 1" x 12" and came in packs of 3 for 5 bucks. I bought two packs. They are velcro. Used one strap on top and one on bottom for the rear roll bar and hooked two straps together for top and two together for bottom for the front roll bar. (6 total) 1 strap wasnt long enough to wrap around the front roll bar so luckily they came in packs of 3, so it worked out perfectly.

All the parts i used i got at walmart. $10 for berkley horizantal 6 rod holder
(x2) $5 for 3pk of velcro rope wraps
Total: $20
Exactly what i was wanting. If i left out any details or anything let me know. Hope it helps someone wanting to do the same thing as well! Thanks for all the help and keep the ideas coming for others to use!

sonofabeach I cut some pvc that I had, painted them black and bolted them to my bumper.
Had on there a few years and they work great.

JeepWingnut I have folding poles so length isn't an issue for me. I got the 2 gun seat holder from Academy Sports for $20 and it holds the poles on the back of the front seat. Academy - Game Winner® Seat Back 2-Gun Rack

Bigchris66 I'm about to make my own I work at a shipyard im using 2 inch pipe cut at 10 inch long I'm taking 4 of them and welding them on my front bumper
05-13-2013 04:17 PM
thgr8alex All these look great, the one i made (posted above) has worked fantastic and doesnt get caught in these low hanging trees. Only issue is that with doors on you have to remove pole to get in. Without doors you can easily climb under. Oh well. Haha its cheap and works

Rubi_Guy I just bought some pvc and an L shape member and bolted it onto the front bumper in the holes the bump caps used to be in. It costed under $20 for two.

Octavious So here's a pic of mine. I used a el cheapo rod holder and mounted it to a board. I then drilled holes in the board to mount it to my bumper. This was supposed to be my "temporary" setup, but its been like this for...many many years, so long I don't remember, with no issues. I've put 6'5" bass rods and over 7" saltwater rods in it with no problems. I use a bungie to keep the rods in the holder on long trips.

Here is a Jeep with a holder mounted on the spare. It's not a DIY, it looks well made. Sorry for the lack of detail in the cell phone picture.

SinfulDragon Break down pole(s), wrap together, put through this hole behind the bumper, put velco wrap around reels and antisway bar for security, presto. Cost me getting caught raiding the Mrs. Sewing stuff to find velcro. Works great with the Smitty XRC Front bumper, other bumpers I suppose could make it hard to get to though.

I have, I pass the TJ with it mounted on the spare every day. As I read this thread, I was thinking of his set up and that I can more than likely snap a picture tomorrow. It looked pretty simple, I think it's made from 4 or 5 PVC pipes connected in some way then attached to the spare.

Duckmasterlack I have seen fly guides use these out west and seem to work. I don't know how well they would work on the vertical windshield on a jeep.

Wordgie Oh, they did stick out from the back window, so it has to be removed/rolled up. I was usually topless/safari topped so it wasn't an issue for me.
04-30-2013 09:14 PM
Wordgie Here's what I did a few years ago. I have a '99, so there was no plastic molding to fuss with.

A couple short pieces of PVC, slightly larger diameter than your rod handle
Straps for conduit/PVC pipe
Piece of metal. I used a door kick plate from an old building.






I cut the metal down to where it would fit between the visors, drilled holes for the straps and the footman loop, then painted everything. This was intended to be a prototype with the final build using better materials and with more care and concern paid to quality. I've since removed it since I don't get out fishing anymore.

Anyway, here it is assembled and installed. You simple remove the footman loop and attach it with the original Torx screws. On the '03 up models, I'm not sure how you can contend with the molding.





And with rods in it. After taking the picture, I tweaked the metal bracket so the handles were in the PVC properly. While driving, I knew the rods were there, but they didn't get in the way at all.





My big dilemma was how to attach them to the sound bar. Bungee cords to the rescue. Not ver clean or professional, but I had them lying around, they were soft so they didn't scratch the poles and they worked. After I pulled the bracket out, I discovered Quick Fists. I think the small ones would work perfectly for this application.

Bigman610 I keep a couple of telescoping rods in the back for beaver pond opportunities when I the mountains.

reicharte13 This is my set up I fish for trout so in always under small trees, this works great for me, I have an ultra light rod there and then a slightly larger one, I've done over 60 with them in

I took two of the rod holders from academy and attached them to the corners
of the body armor and rear light guards .
